New Bicycle Times

“So here we have a piece for New Bicycle Times that should be on magazine shelves in a bookstore near you.  This piece was art directed by the gracious Amanda Zimmerman with Dirt Rag Magazine.  The feature involves a band that travels venue to venue on their trusty bikes.  Amanda was willing to open up the concept so that direct likeness and instruments wouldn’t be necessary, just the overall image.  I think this more ambiguous approach let us create something a bit more iconic and immediately accessible.  It was also an opportunity to paint yet another Electra bike, which I never tire of.  They’re such sweet looking bikes, built with extreme craftsmanship.
I hope you enjoy the new piece.  I have several others to release soon, just waiting for them to go to print before posting.”
